Ornament

The tree is finally decorated, and although many of the ornaments are handmade, I have a soft spot for vintage glass ornaments. If they are glittered, that is a plus.

I never realized how fun it is to paint a glitter effect, and the best part is that it doesn’t fall off and get all over the place!

Candy Jar

The prompt today is candy, which reminded me of this candy jar my mom put out every year when I was young. The snowman head and hat were Styrofoam, and the hat was festively glittered. We would carefully pop the head off the glass jar to reach in for a sweet treat. The scarf was a simple red ribbon glued together.

We also had a Santa version, and both were from the 1950s. Maybe Mom will comment below with a little more info about these cute jars. I love how these prompts bring back so many great memories. Does this invoke a good Christmas memory for you? If so, I hope you share it here!

More Critters

Because I love Cricut’s Create-A-Critter cartridge so much, I am sharing a few more of my favorite cards made with it.  Most were created for OWH except for the giraffe baby card, which was made for my sweet friend Pat when her granddaughter was born.  I took the liberty of using glittered paper on that one (a no-no for OWH) so of course I had to take a good picture of it!

I wish I had taken a better picture of the completed monkey card but forgot before they were all boxed up and sent, so I will just have to make more so I can get a better photo.  I was happy that some of my punny sentiments went right along with the critters.  TGIF!
